RM 39, Leawood, KS

RM 39 in Leawood, Kansas has been a Kansas City staple since 2004. However, we’re focused on the Leawood location, as the Kansas City one is technically in the Missouri (that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go, though!). Their website describes their breakfast and lunch as casual affairs in their beautiful dining room with “simple yet elegant food such as steak and eggs benedict.” But their blueberry and yogurt pancakes are what keep us coming back for more.
